021 - Racism & Media (ft. Nyadol Nyuon)

October 13, 2020

I yarn with lawyer and legendary anti-racism advocate Nyadol Nyuon about racism and representation in Aussie media... the cynically tactical racism faced by the South Sudanese community for profit... the mutually beneficial arrangement between media and far-right grifters... the effort it takes to call those grifters out...  AND MORE!  (note: as I said in the intro to this ep, we encountered a few difficulties talking to each other and had to resort to Skype, which is rubbish.  so while Nyadol's audio is fine, mine is terrible.  sorry!  just pretend i don't exist or something.  xo)

September 29, 2020

I speak to the lads from the As A White Man podcast.  We discuss their fine town of Newcastle, how much everyone really enjoys and understands the name of their podcast, and the importance of calling out gronks. We also force Newcastle's shame Isaac Butterfield to meet us in the Honeysuckle Precinct at midnight to hand over his unsolicited dick pics.

Continuing my run of anti-lockdown-related explainer eps, here I touch on sovereign citizenry, OPCAs, the 'hidden Constitution', how the guvamunt is actually a corporation.  What's that got to do with the anti-lockdown movement?  Well.

016 - Not Dying of Coronavirus

August 3, 2020

I speak to Sophia, a healthcare worker and a mate, about her experience contracting - and not dying of - COVID-19.  We talk about what it's like... the shocking treatment she received in Victorian Government hotel quarantine... the all-staff email she sent to an entire DHHS department just to get them to do something...  and why she's currently got her face stuck in a big tin of Nescafe Blend 43.

015 - Animal Rights Activism (ft. Betty Melon)

July 20, 2020

I chat to dedicated animal rights activist and friend Betty Melon, and learn about AR activism, consistent anti-oppression, the communication breakdowns that happen between AR and non-AR activists and how we might avoid them.  Also we discuss far-right kooks who hang about AR rallies with raw steaks in their mouth clearly loving life, and various big-name vegan foghorns like Joey Carbstrong, Freelee the Banana Girl and Anonymous for the Voiceless - and how they don't represent consistent anti-oppression.
